Good song
Nice production and cool lead guitar. The arrangement work very well,however I wish the vocals were a bit more present in the mix, especially at the end of the song. Your vocals sound as good as I remember they did, back in the old days :)

Hi Steve!
Good to hear something new from you - guitar tones are as good as ever. Your voice seems to have lost none of it's timbre although a little of your depth has gone perhaps. Cool song, could have done with a little more gain on the vocal, but enjoyable all-round.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Nice guitar work and I like that synth (or is it a guitar) panned far right. Sweet ending. As Neil said, the vocal could come forward more - maybe add VOX gain or EQ down some of the other instruments in your centre vocal range of frequencies. To be honest I don't do much live mixing so there are likely better tricks of the trade. In any case a good song that deserves to be heard!

I like the panned guitars but perhaps the left centre guitar could be pushed out a touch further to give the vocal more space. Nice hook. Catchy song. Thanks.

Nice Groove
Classic Steve. Terrific electric guitar, smooth vocals and a hypnotic groove. I love the way you can play guitar notes behind your vocal that enhance it and don't overpower it.

Ocean of sound
love the ambience and I'm really digging the tone you are getting on the guitars. Bass and drums are spot on and not over done. Your vocals fit perfectly in the mix.

An ocean of sunshine
Catchy little tune. It stuck with me long after it was done playing as I walked around my room humming it to myself.

I could see adding a lead guitar break in the middle of this.

Good to hear...
...a new song from you...

"Our love is like a bad equation" is a great line...

I like the deep bass pulse with the thick, harmonized guitar bits over the top. The guitar tones themselves are chiming and sweet.

I'm with Neil about perhaps putting a little bass EQ on the vocal and pushing it forward in the mix...
